Ok, I found my resources. I hope something is of use?

Thanks for that.

I will study the info, and see if there is anything that I can implement. It might take a while as I have a few other changes on the go.

I have created a blueprint for steam generator effects, and will start to reflect upon the coding of it (will take a while).

It is not my intention to code a fully working steam generator, instead I will attempt to facilitate some of the visual effects, such as steam leaks, and any features that directly impact upon the performance of trains or rolling stock (eg changes in mass due to fuel or water usage).

Peter, Looking forward to it.

I hope someday we can talk about HEP for diesels and the extra load applyed to the main engine for the older passenger diesels.

If all you want is a steam plume that can be placed on the generator exhaust, it would be pretty simple, not much coding involved. Steam pop-off valves would be pretty easy also...

Most of the code is already there for the other effects.

Thanks for that.

I am hoping to reuse whatever code that I can.

If only going for effects, then just need the ability to add steam Fx to cars other than steam locomotives.

Are you able to confirm that the feature was working in #3835 or #3834?

Thanks
